Isn’t there anything wrong?

Isn’t there anything wrong?


In the book written by Harold Fickett, there is a phrase he uses, “isn’t there anything wrong?”  “Isn’t there anything wrong?  When a person taking too long to do something, people say he is too slow.  But when they don’t do things, they say they are too busy to do it.  When a person does things without being asked, they say he is being pushy.  Yet when they do things before being asked to do, they say they are being thoughtful.  A person does not have good manner, he is called as a rude person.  Yet when they don’t show good manner, they call themselves as being unique.  When a person tries to do good things to his boss, people call him as a cheeky person.  Yet when people do good thing to their superiors, they call themselves as being cooperative.  When a person is being promoted, people say he is lucky.  Yet when they are promoted, they think they deserve it for their hard work.  Isn’t there anything wrong?”  These stories make us laugh, and it is true that we are all selfish beings.


In a normal arithmetic, a hundred minus one is ninety-nine.  However, the arithmetic within our mind is not always the same.  For example, if a person gives you 100 of good wills, yet he does one thing wrong, you may say “now I know what kind of person he is.  I will never do anything to do with him anymore.”  This one wrong thing becomes a gigantic “one”, and the original arithmetic formula would be distorted.


Moreover, this formula exists only when we receive one wrong thing, or one evil thing from others.  But we insist using the original arithmetic formula when we do something wrong to them. And we may say “I did so many good things for him. For he does not forgiving me is very unreasonable.”


The Bible says “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. (Matthew 7:1-2, NIV)”


We are so selfish in the way we judge and measure others.  However, God judges and measures us in such a blessing way with full of true love. Even we commit so much sin within our heart and by our actions, God makes everything becomes null when you accept Christ as your savior who forgives all of your sin. Not only that, He fills us with so much blessing. How amazing!


Why don’t you accept Christ within your heart?
